The Ligue 1 league table might not tell the truth so early on, but it's the best truth we have so far. Brest and Lorient are placed 15th and 14th respectively.

Brest and Lorient should both be in good shape for this meeting, as there's been enough days for both of them to train and rest since their last matches.

20 - 6 - 13 with 50-38. What does this mean? Well, these are the statistics for Lorient when playing on grass like they will do today. Wins - draws- losses and goals scored-conceded. Lorient play their home games on artifical turf so that's why we provide these numbers.

Brest form and stats

The home fans saw their team lose the first Ligue 1 game of the season here at Stade Francis-Le Ble. Last season these fans witnessed 6 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses from Brest's 14 home games.

A good away victory last time out for Brest, who won 2-0 against Dijon (placed 19th). Preceding that match was a defeat to Olympique Marseille (2-3).

The bookmakers consider this a fairly even contest. One could say only the home advantage separates the teams. It could be relevant to look at how Brest have performed in matches similar to this (as small favourites). Our database has found twelve matches with the results: Won seven, drawn four and lost one.

At Stade Francis-Le Ble, Brest has the goal stats of 2-3 (for/against) from 1 league fixture.

Lorient form and stats

The visitors' first away game in the Ligue 1 ended in defeat. Last season Lorient had these away match statistics: Played 14; won 8, drew 2 and lost 4. Lorient has lost their two previous away games and are eager to kill a negative trend in its infancy.

Home advantage was not enough for Lorient in their previous game, as they lost their Ligue 1-match, hosting Lens, 2-3. It was a defeat before that one as the away game against Saint-Etienne wasn't a success with a 0-2 loss.

So, this is expected to be a close game, an even contest. Looking at earlier matches with Lorient playing away and similar expectations, we found six relevant matches. Results were one Lorient win, three draws and two defeats.

As for goals scored and conceded in the league games away so far, Lorient has managed 0 goals and let in 2 from 1 match.

Head 2 Head

Head-2-head stats last ten meetings: four - three - three (Brest wins - draws - Lorient wins). As for goals, nine matches ended with three or more goals (over 2,5), one had two or less.
